AYOTTE: Women should not have to choose between their jobs and a healthy pregnancy. When I was appointed New Hampshire's first women attorney general, I was six months pregnant with our daughter Kate, our first child, and so I understand the challenge of working during your pregnancy. That's why I introduced bipartisan legislation to end pregnancy discrimination to make sure that women can continue to work during their pregnancies and that employers have to provide reasonable accommodations to their pregnant workers. This is just common sense. This is about making sure that women have an opportunity to continue working during their pregnancy, to be productive. For employers, it makes a lot of sense that they don't lose their workforce.
